Bone Layer Manager Add-on


Manage your bones (or rather, those in Blender) with this new add-on by Alfonso Annarumma.

Alfonso writes:

I've released a new Addon: Bone Layer Manager.

What the script does:

  • set name of layer
  • select bone on layer
  • lock bone on layer
  • move bone to layer
  • automatic creation of bone group of the bone in the layer with random color assignment
  • select the protected layer for the link exportation.



  1. This is awesome .A much welcome and needed feature. Thanks Alfonso!
    The scene layers also needed a manager like this forever, not sure why the blender devs never added one.

  2. this and-on messes alot of stuff up. couldnt activate it, threw alot of errors,and i mean alot.all headers amd properties windows went haywire all mixed up,just names nothing elseand all the wrong contexts. world in mat's physics in in textures wow never seen anything like it. as soon as i took it out smooth sailing.ive been a blender user for quite a while and i know how it that program cant believe i just said that.anyway,Happy Blending.gotta get back to my next project "Valhalla".

  3. Hi Polygonesrus like you I use Blender and love it but I know a little about to programming and programming isn't to simple or ease.
    Please when you put some comment about some one please be more polite because your comment is a little bit hard and all job need respect.
    Alfonso like other in our community did it for free.
